A shortened stock is one of the more common firearm modifications encountered. Often a shooter will need a shorter length-of-pull because he or she has a smaller frame, is younger, or wants a faster handling firearm. In some applications, such as law enforcement, where officers wear thick protective vests, a short stock allows the firearm to be shouldered quickly.
I decided to reduce the length-of-pull on this Remington 870 Express 20-gauge shotgun. The length-of-pull was too long for quick handling so I decided to shorten the stock by 1″ and install a Limbsaver recoil pad.
As always, I start by verifying the shotgun is safe and empty.
